Attend Remotely (see instructions in PS below):
The workshop will cover tools and techniques used to correctly interpret

mapping and analyses. Participants will learn the fundamentals of
georeferencing best practices through a combination of lectures and
hands-on exercises, including paper maps, the MaNIS Georeferencing
Calculator, GEOLocate, BioGeomancer and online exercises. Special
attention will be paid to the specific and unique georeferencing needs
